The Spooky Small Town Of Lone Star In South Carolina Could Be Right Out Of A Horror Movie

A good many of South Carolina’s bonafide “ghost towns” are actually underwater. Not from a hurricane or some other disaster, but on purpose as unlucky towns and communities in the way of progress were flooded when rivers were dammed up in various places in the Palmetto State. But there are some places on the map that have withered away to nothing all on their own without being flooded in the name of progress. The dried-up town of Lone Star could be right out of a horror movie, and may just be a top contender for the scariest town in South Carolina. You may need to be the judge…
